Broadoak Mathematics and Computing College is a mixed Academy school with 900 students and a PAN of 180 in each year group. As a school we are very much committed to the importance of the community we serve and the notion of life-long learning. Equally we are committed to improving and developing the quality of teaching in order that students become independent learners, high achievers and happy and fulfilled individuals.
Broadoak is a successful, vibrant and usually oversubscribed school where achievement and relationships are vitally important, and where all students and members of staff are valued. We foster values of courtesy, consideration and individual responsibility, we offer a high level of challenge accompanied by high levels of support so that all can achieve.
Young people are at the very heart of the College; not only do we value academic performance, but we also believe that students should enjoy their time at school and achieve across a whole range of areas. We provide a happy and safe environment within which students can experience opportunities beyond the classroom so that they can become engaged, independent learners and responsible and confident adults. Most importantly, our students are supported in making the right choices regarding their qualifications. This starts when students select their GCSE subjects in Year 9, but also in Year 11 when deciding on post-16 pathways. As part of this, we offer university trips, including a residential trip to Cambridge University as well as visits to local FE institutions.
There is an extensive support system for students with special educational needs and resources are appropriately targeted to deal with learning and behavioural difficulties. We have an extensive Student Support Team, headed up by a Deputy Head, including a Personalised Learning Base with allows for flexible timetabling and support for students with complex needs.
The extra-curricular provision in school is also seen as a crucial component of what we offer young people. Opportunities to pursue extra-curricular activities and societies are considerable. There are also a number of additional residential activities available including ski trips, and a visit to Auschwitz in Poland. The Duke of Edinburgh Award is both popular and successful.
We believe that students should have a range of opportunities to develop leadership skills from playing a role in our school sports teams, being a tutor representative, a school council representative, and when they reach Year 11, perhaps even a prefect! All of these roles provide opportunities for our students to celebrate their achievements and skills and act as a positive role model to others.
We have excellent relationships with our local partner primary schools, enabling us to offer a comprehensive transition programme. The majority of our students continue their further education within the area, supported with strong links between us and the colleges.
Broadoak offers all new members of staff a pleasant and friendly atmosphere to work in and encourages participation in social as well as professional opportunities, whilst striving for improved standards and results. Every teacher is given a lap-top, and there is a strong emphasis on staff development, training and teamwork. We actively encourage staff to get involved with all aspects of college life and extra-curricular opportunities.
